The Hemp Museum invites seniors and professionals to learn about cannabis

From Jan. 29, the Hemp Museum in Berlin will offer regular informational events on cannabis as a medicine to be held after work.

The “AfterWorkInfo: Cannabis as Medicine (AWI CaM)” follows a similar event geared to seniors and is set to start at 5:15 p.m every Wednesday.

At this first event, the following topics are on the agenda: general information about cannabis as medicine, “cannabis on the go” and an open round of questions and answers in a protected space. Furthermore, experts from the BezirksApotheke Berlin will be present and available to answer questions.

Hemp Museum targets an older demographic with “InfoLunch”

For a while now, the Hemp Museum has also been organizing an “InfoLunch” for those aged 65 and over. In the future, these will take place in alternation with the “AfterWorkInfo” event.

The Hemp Museum “InfoLunch” information event is primarily aimed at senior citizens who have very little knowledge of cannabis as a medicine. In small groups and in a protected environment, the participants then have the opportunity to ask questions.

In addition, changing experts from the health sector (like Melanie Dolfen and her team from the BezirksApotheke in Berlin) will be on-site at the Hemp Museum to provide information.

The first part of the event will deal with general aspects of cannabis as a medicine. Subsequently, alternating age-specific topics are dealt with such as “Cannabinoids and Hormones.” In the end, there will be an opportunity for visitors to ask questions.

The aim of the event is to inform and reduce prejudices. According to the Hemp Museum, the “InfoLunch” is very well received by the participants.

“People are very grateful to be able to ask their questions in a protected space,” the museum spokesperson stated.

Next year the Hemp Museum is planning to introduce a similar event format, but this will take place on weekends and is intended for working people.

Hemp Museum Berlin is a unique space

The Hemp Museum Berlin is the only one of its kind in the Federal Republic of Germany. Besides the hemp museums in Bologna, Barcelona, Uruguay, New Zealand, and Amsterdam, it is one of the few museums of its kind in the world.

At the museum, visitors can get a comprehensive picture of the cultivated plant. The permanent exhibition, which covers all topics related to cannabis, covers more than 2,500 square feet.

The Hemp Museum exhibition covers topics such as the growth and cultivation of the cannabis plant, harvesting, and processing from a historical perspective. It continues with the different possibilities of use including building, insulating materials, fiber production and textile manufacturing, cellulose recovery and paper production, use of seeds, and medical potentials.

The Hemp Museum’s commitment and voluntary work

The Hemp Museum was born from hobby and passion. With the aim of preserving, cultivating and passing on the knowledge of the millennia-old cultivated cannabis plant.

Since its foundation in 1994, the museum has been completely supported by the voluntary work of its employees.

The museum also highlights the importance of cannabis in various cultures of the world from Jamaica to India. Finally, the exhibition deals with the legal aspects of cannabis containing THC. Here the current status of the legal situation is presented.
